Adult Wednesday Night Spring Studies Session 1 begins on January 29 at 6:15 pm.
Through study opportunities, adults learn more about God and themselves and are nurtured as they grow in their faith. In small groups, they question and struggle with relevant life issues. Together, disciples grow in faith and maturity as they become equipped to serve the world beyond the walls of the church. Click on a class name to register.
Childcare is available in A103.
Connect Groups are growing in faith through Connection as a Community.
- Master Leadership led by Dr. Marty Dunbar (Courtyard Room) – What does a godly leader look like, act like, and use as the foundation for leading God's people? This 4-part study will give participants the foundation for leading the Jesus Way, and is based off the "Best Things" from Dr. Dunbar's favorite books. Join the study every week or jump in on a topic that interests you. The reading will drive the discussion on Wednesday nights between Dr. Dunbar and Participants. Materials and the weekly schedule will be posted at www.jwumc.org/PLS every Thursday while the study is being offered.
- Men’s Study led by Bryan Darwin and Alex Miller (E220) –Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul is a book by John Eldredge on the subject of the role of masculinity in contemporary evangelical Christian culture and doctrine. This study invites men to: recover their masculine heart, see themselves in the image of a passionate God, and delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer.

- Women's Study: Jonah led by Nancy Parks (A205) – Dive into the Word with other women as we study Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted. Author Priscilla Shirer shows that interruption in our lives is God’s invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city! Click HERE to purchase a study guide.
- Slow Church led by Patty Hutchins (A202) – In the beginning, the church shared in all facets of life. Centered as they were on Jesus, seemingly mundane activities took on their own significance in the mission of God. In Slow Church, Chris Smith and John Pattison invite us to leave franchise faith behind and enter into the ecology, economy, and ethics of the kingdom of God, where people know each other well and love one another as Christ loved the church.
We are lining up some great things for Session 2 beginning in March. More details will be announced when they are finalized.
